on christmas eve, you could say that i am a bit unsociable, but i love being at home and just quietly watching the carols on television. this is a tradition in melbourne, it is a live telecast from the music bowl and has been going for years and years. i always enjoy it!
this year it RAINED in melbourne on christmas eve, alot of the crowd would have been very wet, but 'carols by candlelight' goes on regardless.
father christmas sent me some lovely parcels and i was spoilt by so many friends and family.
and this lovely book from a good friend
thanks to these two friends, the 'partridge in a pear tree' card and this lovely little tree. as i said at the beginning i was very spoilt, very spoilt, lots of other bits to make me look gorgeous, smell gorgeous, gorgeous things to eat, chocolates! a plum pud from the family in hobart! pear bags! and this gorgeous pear cushion!
this was from my valet driver and his wife, both are good friends and as a 'pair' you have made my trips back and forth to hobart so much easier this year. i am so very grateful for the help of getting to the airport and back at the melbourne end. you know that i am, but i just wanted to say so here, so everyone knows! thanks sharyn and noel.
we sewing girls said goodbye yesterday to one of our 'dear old girls'! marlene's mum, olive o'leary, passed away just prior to christmas. olive often sat in on our sewing days and nights, she had a great spirit and i personally had alot of fun with her over the years, would sometimes 'grannysit' her and enjoyed her company. farewell to you olive and i hope that 'somewhere over the rainbow' you have a good time.
and time to pursue the pastimes we enjoy, i have enjoyed the cricket, been quilting while watching, now it is time to get started on some new projects and add to some already started and maybe finish some too ! i will be back next year !
